THE LIVES OF FREDA: THE BLOG
Ahead of the publication next month of The Lives of Freda, the excellent Srinagar-based daily Rising Kashmir has published a piece by me about Freda Bedi's role in the Kashmiri resistance in the mid-1940s and then in support of the radical administration that took power locally at the close of 1947.
This photo comes from about 1948, when Freda Bedi was a member of a left-wing women's militia in Kashmir, the women's Self-Defence Corps.
She is with her two sons - Kabir is in her arms while Ranga is astride Rufus, the family's Great Dane.
